 Nothing feels more quintessentially New York than a night at the theater.

Between the spectacle, the costumes and music, Broadway is the perfect way to temporarily escape Fashion City’s rush and travel… elsewhere.  Starting Sunday, April 10, we’ll be escaping to the colorful world of the 1960s with the latest Broadway musical, Catch Me if You Can.

Based upon the life and memoir of once-upon-a-time fugitive Frank Abagnale Jr., Catch Me if You Can is a dizzy spin through the adventures of this FBI Most Wanted as he cons his way through the high live while in search of glamour and the girl of his dreams.  Presented as a 1960s TV variety show, Abagnale (played by Aaron Tveit) cavorts through his ensemble of impersonations and frauds with the type of wit and dash that one would expect from a Mad Men advertisement for Pan Am.

Tveit floats across the stage, assuming a variety of personas (from Pan Am pilot to a doctor and lawyer) while dodging the advancements of the ever-present FBI agent Carl Hanratty (played by Broadway favorite Norbert Leo Butz).  With terrific costumes, fantastic songs by Tony-Award winning Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, and electric sets designed by David Rockwell, Catch Me if You Can is the perfect way to jet set to another era for just a night… while having a few laughs, too.
